Here's some pics of the DML M46 Patton Only AM part was the tow cable IMO this is DML's best kit I used 86 links per side Painted with Testors MM acrylic green drab I sprayed on some MM acrylic field drab to simulate dust/dirt
It's only my second time doing that I know it could be better Great campaign

Looks good, not a very commonly seen model. Do you plan to put it in a dio or just a base?

Great job Chad, nice clean build .
Maybe drill out the barrel more or blacken the inside of the muzzle, it really distracts from your realism

I agree that this is a good looking machine. I like the tracks, very nicely weathered.

I have wondered about this before, do you model 'on the road', or did you just take the pic's on the truck. I tried it years ago when I was tramping in the U.K., but the sleeper cabs that we have here are not big enough to take your clothes,food and T.V., never mind a model kit with all that goes with it... :-)

Cheers
Henk

Great looking model. I've never seen an M46 that I can remember. Looks like a cross between a Pershing and a Patton. I guess that because the Patton started as a progression on the M26. Anyway, great job.

Nice M-46 build.I would like to see empty or torn off areas,where the track jacks aren't anymore.
